Galatians 1:10 says, Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.
Have you ever been a people pleaser? I sure have, but not for long. Once I realized it was impossible to please everyone, I decided it was better for me to try to please God. Some people won’t see the good in you no matter what you do. In fact, some people open themselves up to be used by the enemy by spreading rumors and gossiping about you in hopes to ruin your reputation. I heard Joyce Meyer explain it this way: “Trying to please people gives them control and can cause you to lose the call that God has on your life. Focus on your relationship with God rather than your reputation with people.”
Pleasing God and following the word will keep you on the right path. Worrying about what people think of you will cause unnecessary stress which can lead to sickness and disease. I’m not saying go out and live any old kind of way. I’m saying follow Christ not man. I’m not exempt. I’m . . .
Just blogging it out. Happy Wednesday Night!!
